We provide a number of services to the research community at Amrita and our partner universities. One of the most visible services we offer is licensing the new technologies faculty and staff develop. This results in benefits to the inventors, the university and society in general.

If you have an invention and would like to begin working with TEC, we encourage you to start with the invention disclosure process.

Additional activities include:

  • Evaluating the commercial potential and patentability of new technologies
  • Managing the intellectual property protection process
  • Marketing and licensing patents, materials, software, and other technologies
  • Providing guidance on open source software licensing.
  • Receiving and distributing royalties and other income to inventors at Amrita and Other Universities.
Industry Partners

TEC’s evaluation, marketing and licensing processes ensure that technologies created in Indian Universities are developed and commercialized for the benefit of the widest appropriate audience. Here are the company characteristics that TEC looks for to successfully license technologies developed in India:

  • A company that recognizes the likely commercial benefit of the technologies developed at various Universities across India.
  • A company that has the resources to develop the invention (usually early stage) and is determined to commercialize it.
  • Serious intent demonstrated by negotiating a reasonable licensing fee and reimbursement of patent fees (where applicable).
  • An understanding that the University’s primary goal of technology transfer is wide dissemination of new technologies for the public good.
  • A company that takes a ‘partnership approach’ to working with Amrita and our partner University
